The Xbox Series X and Series S are some of the hottest and most challenging gadgets to buy right now. Fortunately, the Microsoft Store has restocked both the Series X and Series S gaming consoles. Get ‘em while supplies last.
The Xbox Series X is Microsoft’s flagship console, serving as its most powerful (and biggest) option that costs $499.99. While the $299.99 Series S is aimed at smooth 1440p performance, the Series X is focused on fast 4K gameplay.
Whether you purchase the most affordable next-gen console (the Xbox Series S) or Microsoft’s most powerful gaming console to date (Series X), both share many accessories that are great for early adopters.
Several of the most popular games to play on these consoles include third-party titles like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Yakuza: Like a Dragon. Additionally, some popular Xbox One titles like Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Gears 5, and Ori: The Collection have all received graphical updates that take advantage of the next-gen hardware.
Games aside, there are also a few accessories to consider — most notably, an extra game controller for your new console. You can expand your store, there’s an external SSD you can purchase, but it is not cheap. Additionally, if you are not interested in buying some games now but need something to play, I suggest getting a subscription to Xbox Game Pass for console or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
The official Xbox Wireless Controller has a dedicated share button for saving clips and screenshots and sharing them online, Bluetooth support, and a USB-C port for charging up Microsoft’s play-and-charge rechargeable battery.
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate offers access to more than 100 titles, including the likes of Halo Infinite, Powerwash Simulator, Pentiment, and surprise hits like Hi-Fi Rush, which you can play on Xbox consoles and PC. The pass also gives subscribers access to exclusive deals, online multiplayer, and Microsoft’s cloud gaming service, Xbox Cloud Gaming.
